Red Velvet Cupcakes

8 Aug

I first heard of the red velvet cupcakes while scrolling through Martha Stewart’s website.It’s basically a lighter version of a chocolate cupcake but in the shade of dark red and topped with cream cheese frosting.If you must know,the color of the cake is achieved through a chemical reaction between the buttermilk,vinegar and cocoa powder and  a tinsy bit of red food colouring to intensify the colour.

The recipe that I used for the cupcakes is from my oh-so-awesome online baking guru,Bakerella.I have no complaints about this recipe. It’s very light and moist with a subtle chocolate taste which paired so well with my favourite cream cheese frosting recipe.

I usually opt for chiffon cakes just because it’s a much healthier option due to the absence of butter .

The chiffon cake that I will be sharing with you beautiful today is Chiffon Cake infused with fresh pandan flavor.

A match made in Heaven.

French Macarons

French macarons with chocolate ganache filling

 

How can you not LOVE French macarons? A perfectly made macaron should have an eggshell-like crust with a soft centre and pretty little ruffles running along the sides.

 Hence, my journey to baking the ultimate macaron begins. After two very unsuccessful attempts,I have learnt that macaron baking is a very delicate process and somewhat tedious especially for a novice baker like me. After a little tweaking of the recipe here and there, lo & behold I present to you,

my French perfection.
